Current WWE Champion Randy Orton retweeted the following message on Twitter, causing a divide in the Internet Wrestling Community:
Every Indy match now: handshake, drawn out move exchange, this is awesome chant, strike exchange, dive no sell Indy strongstyle, dive, more strikes, no sells, dive, flippy floppy sequence, dive, hit everyone with each other’s finisher then Humpty Dumpty we all fall down. Fight forever chant, rinse and repeat until every move is useless and means nothing, dive, take unsafe shot that looks like shit and hurts like hell then roll up finish. Hand shake and hug after match. Everyone’s hands raised. All these guys chant. Go home and type on social media thanking your opponents and company for the match and telling others they should book these guys. ……………dive.”
PWF Empire contributors Jay, Stephen, Dalton, and Micah “dive” into the controversy created by Orton co-signing and amplifying the message, the significance of the independent wrestling scene on the wrestling industry as a whole, and its negative(?) influence on WWE.
